U.S. Naval Academy Class of '67
There is one big item remaining on our near-term Class agenda: wrapping
up our ongoing 50th Anniversary Class Gift of $2,692,895. Keep those
pledge payments coming.
We have completed the last “Another Link in the Chain” (ALITC)
events – with the delayed graduations of the final members of the
Class of 2017. With these graduation ceremonies, our official duties
are complete and our relationship with ’17 has entered the new
phase of “alumni-to-alumni.” Once again, many thanks to Jack
Parry for his Chairmanship of the ALITC program and to the many classmates
joined in one or more of the ALITC events over the past 4 years.
We still have a few copies of our outstanding ’67 50th
Anniversary Book. They, and a few reunion tote bags, are still available
in the Class
Again, thank you to our editor-in-chief Ed Mills (our original
1967 Lucky Bag editor), Ed Kerins, Tony Wayne, Pete Smullen, Dick Glasow,
Macidull and Rich Mies for taking on this momentous, and record setting
The treasure trove of individual, personal reflections and photos
as well as the Class history are serving as a wonderful resource.
In fall of 2018 we will cheerfully welcome many out-of-town
classmates and families to the ’67 Village tailgate at Navy home football games.
We’ve posted a “Rules of the Road” link on the Calendar
for our tailgates and a graphic of the location just outside Gate D
on the Blue (Brigade) side of the stadium for future attendees. Put
as a year to join us in Annapolis as Navy enters its fifth year as
a football member of the American Athletic Conference. Kick-off times
may vary again
this so stay tuned.
Away & Bowl football games continue to be wonderful opportunities
for “local” classmates,
and those coming in for the game, to get together at either/both a
Class event and the BIG Navy pre-game tailgate. We put out this information
to the football season commencement. Two big games away from Annapolis
are Navy-Hawai’i in Honolulu on September 1st and Navy-Notre
Dame in San Diego, CA on October 27th.
The Navy-Notre Dame game mini-reunion weekend is now planned.
We have almost 100 classmates indicating they will be in attendance. The
page for the reunion will be published soon. Don’t miss this
outstanding opportunity to be in San Diego, gather with Classmates,
and see us knock
off Notre Dame again. See the calendar here on the website for the
Many thanks to Pete Phelps (chairman), Steve Halupa and the ’67 “Legends
in Their Own Minds” group of San Diego for spearheading this
event. It is going to be a singular mini-reunion!
The Annapolis area ’67 Golf Outing (19th) will be on
9 June 2018 at the Navy golf course. See the calendar here for the details.
Davey again is the driving (pun intended) force. Dust off those clubs
You need to be on the Class
and watch for class-wide emails for details.
We need to stay über-organized as a class and keep our
role and reputation as a leader and integral part of our greater alumni body.
We need to do
our part to ensure USNA continues to be, now and in the future, the
national treasure it is. Your officers can lead the Class much more effectively
if we are all members of the Alumni Association. We use the Association’s
considerable and robust database for all class communications, reunion
services, and IT support services. Please ensure your profile is current
on www.usna.com (click at “My Account”).
Again, our Class
where we, over 450 classmates and spouses, are gathering many of our
Class & family
photos, videos, and news! (No politics, no over the edge humor or controversial
topics – just “family” material).
I ask all of you to consider keeping your USNA charitable
gifts coming to the USNA Foundation over the next years, while strongly considering
staying, or becoming, at a minimum, an annual Presidents Circle member.
I also encourage all to consider the Planned Giving Program at the
USNA Foundation and becoming a member of Robert Means Thompson Society.
We alumni need to do our part in ensuring that USNA remains
the premier leadership institution in the land.
I again want to thank Wayne Savage (VP), Jim McNeece (Scribe),
Jack Parry (Treasurer), Dick Meade (Web and Database Guru (“Dick of the Database” -
DOTDB), and Steve Phillips (‘67 Store Manager) for their service.
Be involved, and be in contact, often!
Go Navy! Beat Army!!!
